You need to talk to your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and ask them to secure your wireless internet with a WEP security code. Your wireless should always have one. Don't let them put in your phone #, address, or anything personal. The WEP security code should be a mixture of letters and numbers.

One doesn't need his/her ISP to do that.

And don't use WEP, WPA is better and easier for you. There are lots of guides around if you do a Google search for 'setting up WPA', but essentially you need to get your router's manual and find the method of accessing it's setup - usually requires typing 192.168.*.* into your browser address bar, putting in the username & password, then looking for wireless/security. Unfortunately each brand of router has slightly different methods/layouts hence you need the manual. It's highly unlikely your ISP will help out, & even if they do the standard of assistance can be very variable.
